    Mine updated today and it's in Nashville. Agree with the previous poster. I wouldn't worry about it. You'll get it on the 16th if that's what it says.

    Yes I agree we ordered before when the orignal ipad went 3g and it was very accurate as to delivery date. I'm just curious as to the rhyme or reason behind the status changed. We ordered online about 1:30 PST on announcement date. CC processed same day.

    Here is what I received from Apple recently. It was shipped on the night and it has made its way all the way to Louisville Kentucky. So do you think it'll take six days to get from Louisville Kentucky? Could I not drive to Louisville and ask them if I could pick up my package?

    I seriously doubt that they'd give it to you early, but if you don't mind the drive and possible frustration, it might be worth a shot.

    I got my shipment notification for my white 32gb AT&T model just now: no tracking info yet.

    My black 32gb AT&T is still processing.

    I ordered the black on 3/7 at 4:30 CST, and I ordered the white an hour later.

    Mine says "processing for shipment". On the 4S preorder, my wife's shipped 2 days before mine and came at the exact same time. Hers was help up at a UPS location for 2 days and mine caught up the day before delivery.

    My iPad is currently in Nashville, Tennessee, with a ship date listed as 3/9. Estimated delivery is 3/16.

    Here's a weird one though, and please let me know if any of you have had something similar happen.

    I purchased the iPad on day one after much frustration. The transaction went through and was debited from my checking account successfully. I received a confirmation email from Apple, and have watched the iPad go from Processing, to Preparing for Shipment, to being Shipped.

    This morning, I checked the balance in my checking account and something didn't seem right. My account balance seemed higher than it should be. Strangely, Bank of America is showing no record that the transaction ever took place. No trace of a purchase, or a refund. No email from Apple, and still showing as shipped.

    Anyone else experience something like this?

    Should I be worried?

    Apple pings you account at checkout to make sure funds are available, but doesn't withdraw the fund till release day ....... sometimes later (I didn't get charged for my 4s till a week after receiving it).

    No need to worry, standard apple practice.

    My tracking says picked up by FedEx in Middletown, PA but I figure they will hold it near where I am Till the 16th.

    Mine is in Middletown PA like a lot of people on the east coast, with delivery on the 16th. I would assume that FedEx under threat of losing future business from Apple will not be delivering early. I guess the good news is that it's guaranteed by 3pm.

    I believe the money gets moved when it's delivered. Although I could be wrong, I think I read that somewhere.

    Thank you so much for the info. I sincerely appreciate it. I was really worried that something had gone wrong with my shipment.

    Apple holds credit card payments and aggregates them every few days. This way, the are processing a higher total dollar amount and the rate their processing company charges is lower. If you've ever noticed that you don't get receipts for your iTunes purchases right away, and sometimes you get one that combines several purchases into one, that's why.

    That said, Apple charged me immediately for my new iPad. Maybe their procedure is different if it's a credit card vs. debit card.

    Debit cards work differently than credit cards.

    When you use any credit or debit card, the first step is a pre-authorization step. This ensures the merchant that they can actually bill the card for this authorized amount.

    The merchant can only capture the funds when they ship the product. This is the law.

    For a credit card, this pre-authorization is good for 30 days. This decreases your available credit, since you have told the merchant you intend to purchase. If the merchant has not captured funds before the pre-auth expires, the available credit goes back up and the transaction is voided.

    For a debit card, the bank reduces your balance for the pre-auth period. The period is shorter for a debit card, but the process works the same way. Three to five days after the pre-auth expires, the bank will return your funds to your account.

    Only on shipping may the merchant actually capture the funds.

    What happens when the merchant cannot ship before this pre-authorization expires is that they need to start over, charge the card again with both a pre-auth and capture step (combined into one transaction). In the case of a credit card, there am not be enough available credit and your purchase will fail, causing a delay in shipping. In the case of a debit card, if the merchant references the original transaction within 30 days of the pre-auth expiring, the charges will go thru regardless and if there are no funds in the account, you will be over drawn, with all the fees and penalties that go along with that.
